Ignore self-signed ssl cert using Jersey Client [duplicate]

After some searching and trawling through some old stackoverflow questions I’ve found a solution in a previously asked SO question:

  • Question: Java client certificates over HTTPS/SSL
  • Answer Java client certificates over HTTPS/SSL

Here’s the code that I ended up using.

// Create a trust manager that does not validate certificate chains
TrustManager[] trustAllCerts = new TrustManager[]{new X509TrustManager(){
    public X509Certificate[] getAcceptedIssuers(){return null;}
    public void checkClientTrusted(X509Certificate[] certs, String authType){}
    public void checkServerTrusted(X509Certificate[] certs, String authType){}

// Install the all-trusting trust manager
try {
    SSLContext sc = SSLContext.getInstance("TLS");
    sc.init(null, trustAllCerts, new SecureRandom());
} catch (Exception e) {
